August 21, 2021

Lionel Messi, who was left out of Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for their Ligue 1 encounter against Brest on Friday, has returned to Barcelona with his family, reported Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
According to the report, Messi, who has spent most of his life in Barcelona since joining the Spanish club in 2000, went back to Catalonia to spend time in his home at Castelldefels. He is reported to stay in Barcelona until Sunday.
The 34-year-old is believed to have been awarded a rest, having taken part in a lengthy Copa America tournament which saw him lift his first trophy with Argentina earlier this summer.
Messi has had a hectic month of August. After his contract negotiations broke down with former cub Barcelona on August 5, Messi arrived in PSG and was presented to the fans on August 11.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner is expected to make his debut for the Parisians next week instead when they face Stade de Reims away from home.
